Journeys—Half the Fun is Getting There

As I write this, the High Holidays have not yet arrived. By the time you receive this newsletter, we will be in the midst of the Yamim Noraim—the Days of Awe—the ten days between Rosh HaShannah and Yom Kippur. The holiday season does not end there, however. No sooner do we finish our Yom Kippur services and break the fast, than we begin our next holiday — Sukkot — the Festival of Huts. Sukkot reminds us of the time of wandering in the desert under God’s protection and shelter, as the children of Israel camped out in temporary huts or shelters. Unlike Passover, where we began our journey as we departed from Egypt, and Shavuot, where we arrived at Mount Sinai to receive the Torah, Sukkot is all about the journey. In many traditional circles, people start to build the sukkah as soon as possible after Yom Kippur is over, some even symbolically hammering the first nail even before breaking the fast! Come join us on Wednesday evening, October 12, for “pizza in the hut” as we decorate our own congregation’s Sukkah at the synagogue, and then have a pizza dinner in our Sukkah. At 5:15 pm we will decorate the Sukkah; at 6:00 pm we will eat in the Sukkah, followed by Sukkot family services in the sanctuary at 7:30pm. Come and shake your lulavim with us! As Sukkot draws to a close, we have yet another celebratio Simchat Torah. We rejoice in the

Torah and celebrate the end of our Torah reading cycle and the beginning of a new one. Come down to the synagogue and celebrate with us on Wednesday, October 19 at 7:30 pm. We will march with the Torahs, sing, dance and unroll an entire Torah so we can read from Bereishit (the first book of the Torah) and Devarim (the last book) at the same time. In order to do this, we need lots of people to help hold the Torah and be a part of the service. It is truly amazing to see the Torah like this, up-close and personal—the columns and special patterns they make; the black ink and white spaces, and the beautifully inscribed crowns on the letters made by the sofer (scribe). We will also inaugurate our children into the world of Torah learning as we invite our newest Hebrew and Religious school students up on the bimah in front of our Arks where our Torahs are held. We will bless them as they begin their studies, gathered under a large tallit. Each child will receive his very own miniature Torah. Speaking of Torah, our Rabbis taught that the highest ideal of all Jews is the study of Torah. Because of this, our Jewish tradition strongly emphasizes the importance of learning, and a search for knowledge even beyond the text of the Torah, extending to all Jewish literature and related theology. Most Saturday mornings we hold our Torah study discussion group at 10 am unless there is a Bar or Bat Mitzvah; in that case we begin at 12:15pm. Continued on page 2

Worship Schedule Saturday, October 1

Don’t be afraid of the word “study!” No previous knowledge of Hebrew or Torah is required, just curiosity and a willingness to learn, participate, and ask questions. We begin each week with the parashat hashavua (the weekly Torah portion) but often this leads us into lively discussions about Judaism and the world around us, current events, even comparative religion! Try it; you might like it. Finally, Walt and I wish that everyone be sealed for goodness in the New Year — G’mar Chatimah Tovah.

From the Men’s Club Welcome back!! I hope all of you had a restful summer. Men’s Club has been busy trying to help the Temple as a whole by attending more events and co-sponsoring events run by Sisterhood, Parents’ Association and the School Board. Currently, we are organizing a Spaghetti dinner that will precede a Shule-in on Saturday November 12, 2011. Coming soon will be the Robert Kennedy talk on alternative energy presented by Roger Opstbaum. Stay tuned for more events. On a personal note, I would like to wish everyone a Happy L’Shannah Tova!! Andrew Larkin, President of the Men’s Club

From the Parents’ Association With the beginning of the new school year, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Jody Harkavy and my son Ethan is starting in the aleph class this year. Because I want to make sure his journey with the temple is the best possible, I volunteered to be Co-president of the Parents’ Association with Jo-Ellen Kosack. In the short time I have been a member of Temple Beth Sholom, it has become my home and its members, my extended family. I am grateful to have found you and will work hard to make our time together as nurturing and pleasant as possible. I am endeavoring to produce many family oriented programs including a Chanukah party in December, and a family game night following that in January.It’s our temple and these are our children. We need to make sure that their education is something they themselves want to experience. We, the members of the PA are all excited and gung-ho for all of this to come to pass. But we can't do it without you, the parents and members of the synagogue. Whatever way you can help, whether it is by devoting time, ideas, energy, or just letting others know that we are going to be a dynamic force for the whole community to enjoy, we appreciate your enthusiasm and your willingness to help us succeed. May you all have a good and healthy holiday season. Chag Sameach!!Jody Harkavy Co-president of the Parents’ Association Page 4|October 2011

Board of Trustees Report September 2011 The Board of Trustees met on Monday September 12, 2011. Treasurer Arnold Morse presented the August financial report, which was approved. Membership income was $11,000.00 below budget and it continues to be necessary to borrow from the General Fund. This was discussed. President Schildkraut requested the Budget and Finance Committee to meet and examine our dues structure, as alternates have been suggested. Three new member families were approved by the Board. Temple is now at 189 Member Units. Plans continue for reupholstering the Sanctuary seats. There has been an anonymous donor offer to pay for 50% of the cost, if Temple can raise funds for the rest. Willie Rivera reviewed the status of current Temple tenant contracts with the Queens Oratorio Society, LFCC, and the International Nursery School. Respectfully submitted, Gail Tishcoff, Recording Secretary

Fall Into School News The first day of religious school was happy and sad. The students were happy to see their friends and the teachers returning for another school year. It was also Sept. 11, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America. Rabbi Ballan and Cantor Goodman led a short commemorative service for each session, and the teachers followed up with a short discussion in the classrooms. Each class wrote a class charter of ways they expect to behave in the coming year. Many thanks to the school board and parents who helped first day registration go smoothly. As of the first day of school, there are 67 students registered. Five preschoolers showed up at our first Jewish Start class. Along with our yearly special events, we look forward to many out of Temple experiences! Calling all new students! When you come to the Simchat Torah service on Wed. Oct. 19, you will be called up to the Rabbi for a special blessing, and given your own mini Torah to take home. How exciting!
